did it in 2000, it happened, for a specific situation in 2004. when george w. bush did in 2005, because of katrina. when obama did it, a year ago, it was because of libya. and in each case, price the went down significantly. i don't think the obama administration will do it now because it will look too political and might actually be political if they were to do it, but i would note that gas prices are starting to come down from where they had been and romney, who is blaming obama for the increase in gas prices is not giving obama any credit for the gas prices actually going down. >> all right. jonas? >> i think that the government could make money trading this thing, and in charge of the spr. and sell at $100 a barrel and announce you're going to drill in the public lands and-- i'm saying that's not the job of government and moreover a political thing wouldn't become a thing it make money, it'd be to drive prices down before the election. and for the iran situation, that's probably what it's for an old-fashioned concept we don't use it because people don't like $4 gas, gas is
and 2003 during the recession, republican president george w. bush increased state aid to state and local government. this is the first time that conservatives in the republicans and congress have actually chosen to starve state and local governments during a recession and leading them to do for stupid things like ask for the tacks and encourages socially irresponsible behavior like not calling the fire department. >> brenda: toby, shouldn't they just get their spending under control instead of adding new tax sns. >> i don't think we're in a recession, right now, fyi. and if you actually put some actual fees and spend on this, now, 25% of the phone calls in the 411, are not right. i mean they're a wrong call. 911, i'm sorry. ambulance the same deal, half of them are fake calls and i think that actually helps get the costs down because it has people think, i would have to pay for a visit. >> okay. jonas, last word. >> you know, the 800 number for the police-- 900 number. >> and the states are cutting back and you can't say that the states haven't cut stuff out of the budget and that federa
assistant to george w. bush, ron christine joining us, and freedom watch president, bush staffer, brad blakeman. brad, good to have you with us. brad, starting, if i may, with you. this is becoming an unwieldy weight for the administration. surely, they understand how urgent it is that the record be set straight and soon. >> well, here's where the cover up begins. they are trying to cover tracks by saying initially the intelligent services told them it was a spoon tape yows attack, but the key questions, lou, is what did the president know? when did he know it? when did the narrative change? did the president ask questions? was he briefed in person? or rely on paper reports? one thing is for sure, lou, and that's this. if this happened in new york, if one of the ambassadors picked off the streets in new york and the consulate in new york to the u.n. was damaged like in libya, there would have been hell to pay. what's the difference between where our ambassadors picked off by terrorist terrorists whether the votes of new york or benghazi. how is it possible the administration and the pr
tomorrow. not giving george w. bush a ago.ce against al gore 12 years that is part of my take and my take will be next. [lghing] [message beep] [tires screeching] >> they talk about that all year. it was never true. when we made a gain of 6 show us what they had written down it was a stack of paper with all work and no play makes jack adult oid. that was grover norquist. stuart: cold water all over the idea in the new york times there will be a budget compromise during a lame-duck congress. as he was doing that the stock market came off of its 15 point rally. "varney and company" wall to wall starting at 9:20 eastern. to the big board we are down 11 points. i call it pretty flat market. look at gold pretty flat. not much movement at 1778. as for the price of oil down $0.03. gas prices flat. national average for a gallon of regular still at $3.78 and diesel and $4.08. early this morning i jumped the gun on that. early this morning i was flipping through the newspapers and doing a little channel surfing. i suppose i shouldn't be surprised when i see media bias but when classic examples jum
to president george w. bush karl rove. thank you so much for coming back on the show, carl. >> you bet. thank you for having me. melissa: the big question, does it all translate into votes? what do you think? >> typically a strong debate performance in the first debate does translate into a an improvement in the numbers for a particularly for a challenger. how big a an improvement depends upon the arc of the entire debate series. we won't know exactly until the final debate. if you look at it in seven out of the last nine presidential debates series, the challenger party has benefited, the incumbent party benefited in two of nine. how big the advantage gets to be depends upon the arc of the entire debate performance but the first sets tone. i think the tone was set quite well by governor romney last night in his campaign. melissa: what do you think he has to do in the second debate? has he now raised the bar so high? people that support him are so jazzed how he did but does you have to come out blazing again? >> he has to come out and give another good debate performance. it is not his suppor
have been the president for the last four years, not george w. bush. we came out of some real problems in 2008 but the economy was getting better. the administration was putting out of beds about how the economy is better and it went south again because of his policies. he has to jump all over that. you are the president. the box tops with your debt and enough is enough. leadership is about taking the blame when you are doing something wrong in taking credit when you do something right. >> when the president created five million jobs, private-sector jobs, the president hasn't turned the scotty economy around and it is not where it needs to be he has done an incredible job -- [talking over each other] dennis: thank you very much. good news. private sector jobs this morning. are we heading for recession anyway? liz macdonald will investigate. tracy: the bad news from american airlines led to strong contract talks. as we do every day at this time let's look at how oil is trading down $2.83. under $90 a barrel. $89.06. we will be right back. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves to shop onlin
is not a third term of george w. bush. if he fails to do that, because that will be the obama response, what you are trying to do is we tried that way in the past and it did not work. romney has to come back and say we have lots of failed policies and this is why i am different. if he does that, he can win this. lori: will the president default to the fact that thinkers? we know jpmorgan was in the news this week you how to think ronnie should handle those attacks? >> if he stays away from that, and kind of keeps and even keel, i think it will ease the concerns of some business leaders and could help him within the business community. if he goes back to the populace rhetoric that we have heard, i think the market and business will react negatively. lori: why do you think it is from these best and possibly last chance? >> he is going head to head with the president. you do not get a better opportunity than this. a lot of states have early voting. the further we get into october, the larger percentage of voters will have already voted. they will not have as big of an impact. lori: brian gardner, t
